ANACONDA - Jeremy Brent Cramer has been charged with deliberate homicide. His bond is set at $250,000.

ANACONDA - Detectives from the Lacey, Wash. Police Department say the boy's mother alerted police Monday afternoon that the boy's custodial father, 39-year-old Jeremy Brent Cramer of Lacey, left with the child and was not answering his phone.

An Amber Alert was not issued because Cramer is the boy's legal father and the child was not believed to be in harm's way.

The child's mother provided credit card information to police, allowing them to track Cramer's movement eastbound on I-90.

Authorities in Washington, Idaho, Montana were given a description of Cramer's truck.

ANACONDA - Authorities are investigating the apparent homicide of a 3-year-old boy.

An area of Mill Creek Road, east of Anaconda, is at this time still closed, as Anacaonda-Deer Lodge and State law enforcement officers investigate the scene where the boy's body was found.

Anaconda-Deer Lodge Police officers responded to a call around 10:30 Monday night, by a convenience store who reported seeing an adult male trying to wash blood off his body and clothes in the rest room.

An investigation by Anaconda-Deer Lodge police unveiled the suspect had left with his 3-year-old son from Lacey, Wash., likely as part of a custodial dispute.

Police found the man's vehicle five miles southeast of town, without the boy in it.

Police eventually found the boy's body after day break Tuesday.

The suspect, 39-year-old Jeremy Brent Cramer of Lacey, Wash., is at this time being held in custody on unrelated misdemeanor charges.
